Printable Database of Used file names
« on: May 04, 2021, 12:56:55 PM »
Howdy!
I was searching without luck to find if PM makes a database of file names? The intent is so when I'm on the road, I have with me my file names and number of the last file.

Appreciate any help

Moose,

No, Photo Mechanic 6 doesn't make a database of filenames.

But you can select all of the images in a contact sheet and use the Export... command on the File menu and then use the Text Exporter template.  Use:

{filename}{nl}

for the middle text field, and use "Save all as one file".  Then click the Export button and choose your filename.  You'll now have a list of all of the files in that contact sheet.  You can print it out or just view it with a text editor.

I'm not sure if that's what you're after or not.

Otherwise, if you really want a database that keeps track of your files, Photo Mechanic Plus is available as an upgrade and it can show you all of your files at once.

I forgot to ask ... Plus ... it will share database over machines not on a network?
Thanks

Moose,

No.  I'm not sure how that would even be possible.  There would have to be some method of transferring data between the computers.

Currently Photo Mechanic Plus is a single-user catalog system.
